On a Quiet Afternoon
Somewhere far away, on a difficult week, a complete stranger read my words, felt my fears and responded with the kindest of comments.
Her thoughtfulness found me on a quiet afternoon when the clock ticked lethargically, John snored fitfully and the world outside my living room felt very remote.
Though nothing outwardly had changed my day was irrevocably altered. The clock still ticked, John still snored, but my muddled mind was touched by the understanding of others and in the midst of my confusion I felt connected.
I created my blog as a place to record my thoughts and chronicle the passing of time, and have felt hesitant about sharing it with others, but this simple comment not only brought tears to my eyes but also broadened my understanding of the possibilities of this space.
Thank you Ali for sending me kind words, understanding and enlightenment.
